Virtual Cathedral Concert

BGGS is delighted to present Reflections, a virtual Cathedral Concert showcasing the musical talent of the School’s most senior music ensembles.

This virtual Cathedral Concert offers a reflection on some of the most spectacular performances from the School’s past three Cathedral Concerts, in addition to premiering a special collaborative project in which students have worked with Mr Warwick Adeney, concertmaster of the Queensland Symphony Orchestra.

While current circumstances prevent us from gathering in the Cathedral of St Stephen, we trust you will enjoy the musical performances shared in this online concert.

Each year, the School’s Music Support Group donate the proceeds of Cathedral Concert ticket sales to the Wesley Palliative Care Unit. Should you wish to support the incredible work of this unit, you can make a donation online.
